Inclusive Services

Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

Our curriculum is designed to match your child’s needs by offering personalised learning which is differentiated according to their ability and learning style. This will develop their skills as learners and help them to become more independent, enabling them to progress and reach their full potential. The classroom environment may also be adapted to suit individual needs. Where a student has been identified with SEN, work will often be differentiated or adapted by the class teacher to enable them to access the curriculum more easily. All students have individual needs. Students in school with SEN receive support that is personalised.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

Regular reviews of a student’s progress are discussed at Provision Plan or Annual Review meetings. These will usually follow the format of the graduated response. The first part of this meeting is to look at the provision for your child and make decisions about the progress that your child is making. The second part is to make new plans and adjust the provision as necessary.
